A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Ruby amber pour, warm orange highlights and topped with a creamy, one-finger, off-white head from the bomber courtesy of dkachur (thanks, Dan!): Nose of orange marinade, summery citrus (lemon) oils, honeydew, herbs, toffee, maple syrup, bran flakes, and buttered toast, all backed by solid caramel malts. Taste is similar, surprisingly spicy at that first second, but carefully blending into a smooth, thick resinous feel. Medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. A bit too syrupy sweet at times, but that can be overlooked. It’s an enjoyable brew. Drinkability: Bold notes, nothing hidden. Pairing: Beefsteak burger, lots of cajun garlic fries. Rebuy: Probably. #462 on 12062010, DG.

Pour is a tight creamy looking head that dissipates to a spotty film, not alot of carbonation somewhat flat. Aroma is sweet floral citrus and grapefruit. Taste is creamy sweet flowers and dry grapefruit orange finish. Palate is creamy again and a dry grit finish.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2010
22 oz bottle from Liquor Barrel. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a fluffy two finger head. Hoppy (citrus) aroma slightly malty. Flavor is very hoppy with some citrus notes and a malty backbone, pretty bitter. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with a bitter finish.

Quevillon (2702) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2010
Drank on day 2 of the 2010 Mondial de la Bière. Beautiful red, small head. Aroma hops barley sugar, a bit of brown sugar. Really dry hops taste, not very tasty, dry aftertaste. What the hell was that?

Sammy (9815) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle at Mondiale 2010. Hop aromas, emminating from very golden coloured body with a white hjead and lace rings. You can see the carbonation bubbles. Good piney hops and creamy malts, hits the bullseye for the style. But you can detect the a.b.v. Bit above average mouthfeel.

patrick767 (3741) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2010
bottle - Pours amber-orange with a one finger head. It has a big grapefruit hop aroma with some underlying malt. The flavor is of big, crisp, grapefruit heavy hop bitterness with some caramel malt that supports it nicely. It’s full bodied and overall an excellent brew.

flatmatt (1305) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly tropical fruits, with some citrus and pine blending in. Flavor again has a lot of juicy tropical fruit flavors, blending with some resinous notes and citrus, plus some caramel malts. Wow, I’m really loving the blend of flavors. This is really good.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Pours hazy, deep copper toned, aromas of citrus and resin hit you and draw you in. Wonderful floral, citrus, grapefruit juice, malt backbone, very deftly balances the heavy hops. Hides the alcohol very well, could easily drink several of these tooo quickly ! Enjoy.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Appearance: Dark and malty drown red with honey folds. A frothy 1 finger white crown that shows some retention and lacing. Smell: Caramel malt and floral hops. Taste: Caramel malt, floral hops, a touch of astringency, a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, a touch chewy, and very nice! Drinkablity: The flavor profile is the only thing holding me back from rating this brew higher in this category. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-13-2009
